Interactive Game Results To Be Unveiled On-Air During "Watch What Happens: Live"

NEW YORK - September 22, 2011 - Expanding on their innovative track record, Bravo Media announces the launch of "Turtle Time," the first Facebook social media game to have its outcome announced on-air each week. Inspired by one of the most legendary declarations uttered by a Bravolebrity, this game invites fans to play for the opportunity to see their virtual vision come to life on-air. Bravo's "Watch What Happens: Live" introduces their newest member to the Clubhouse Sunday, September 25th at 11pm ET/PT. For a sneak peak at the magical "meeting" of Andy Cohen and his new friend, click on: http://www.bravotv.com/watch-what-happens-live/season-5/videos/andy-cohen-has-his-turtle-time

"Ever since I landed on the shores of Sag Harbor, I have been searching for my big break in show biz. When Andy Cohen came walking down those golden sands, I knew my dreams were coming true," Divulged Yet-To-Be-Named Turtle. "I can't wait to move into the Bravo Clubhouse and to be dressed in the latest fashions."

The fun starts new every Monday with a round of "Turtle Time," where each week, players are given a bare virtual turtle in an empty tank. Their challenge: to design the most fabulous outfit and tank using an assortment of virtual costumes, backgrounds and tank accessories. Players will have the option to gift items to friends, as well as purchase special items with Facebook Credits. When a turtle is created, it is entered into the competition, where players vote hot-or-not style on their favorite designs. The virtual turtle with the most votes will be re-created on that week's live show on the new Clubhouse's resident. At the end of the season in December, Andy will choose the top turtle of the season, and the winning designer will be jetted to New York to attend a taping of "Watch What Happens: Live" and an exclusive meet-and-greet with the turtle.

Bravo has notified American Humane Association so that the turtle's well-being can be monitored during production. A Certified Animal Safety Monitor from American Humane Association is scheduled to be on the set, upholding the Guidelines for the Safe Use of Animals In Filmed Media to ensure the turtle's safety.

Bravo is a program service of NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, a division of NBCUniversal, one of the world's leading media and entertainment companies in the development, production, and marketing of entertainment, news, and information to a global audience.
